MMAPA Launches COVID-19 Public Awareness Campaign
Urges People to Take Proper Precautions to Stay Healthy During the Holidays
The Medicaid and Medicare Advantage Products Association (MMAPA), a non-profit composed of the leading Medicaid and Medicare Advantage organizations in Puerto Rico, launched a public awareness campaign urging the island’s citizens to take proper precautions to stay safe and healthy during the holiday season.
The wide-ranging campaign will include TV, digital, and print advertisements and represents MMAPA’s “commitment to helping people protect themselves from the high risk of COVID-19 contagion,” and it will feature the chief medical officers of all six MMAPA companies: First Medical, Humana, MCS, MMM/PMC, Plan de Salud Menonita, and Triple-S.
“There is an urgent need to make as many resources as possible available to the public, especially as we approach the holidays, so they can stay informed and safe during these challenging times,” said MMAPA President Roberto García. “Our medical experts recognize there is widespread fatigue after months of living through the virus, but through social distancing, using masks, washing our hands frequently, and avoiding all non-essential travel or gatherings, we can overcome this pandemic. Together, with these actions, we can help protect those who are most vulnerable to COVID-19: the elderly, low income, and those with chronic conditions.”
MMAPA said its member companies are committed to supporting Puerto Rico’s health care community and helping to ensure people stay safe during the pandemic.
MMAPA members are on the front lines of COVID-19 mitigation and prevention efforts, investing in programs and services designed to help ensure people can access the care they need to stay healthy, and supporting providers, “so that they can continue serving our members in time of great financial distress,” the organization said.
